to the streets of cairo for the latest. plus, bay state battle. as president obama gets some rest in martha's vineyard before a road trip rally, republicans meet in boston to map out their fight for the fall. as we approach the 50th anniversary of president kennedy's assassination, we'll take a look at the final months of kennedy's life in the white house. good morning from washington. it's thursday, august 15th, 2013, and this is "the daily rundown." i'm in for chuck todd this morning. we begin with the developing news in egypt. where members of the muslim brotherhood and their supporters are defying government leaders and holding new protest marches in multiple cities, raising the risk of more bloodshed. today's demonstration comes a day after the military's all-out assault on pro morsi demonstrators that left more than 500 people dead. in an effort to stop the protest altogether, the interim government has placed the country under a month-long state of emergency. it's also going after protest leaders. recommending murder charges against more than 80 members of the brotherhood and their s
, not in the south of france, but in martha's vineyard and that has triggered the expected criticism from corners of capitol hill. of course who are the middle of a five-week vacation. "usa today" is reporting the first family is going to be staying at the $7 million home of a top democratic donor and, of course, bill clinton also vacationed in martha's vineyard during his time in the white house but he famously and i know that gene will remember this and ed will remember this, he famously switched his vacation destination after dick morris took polls to see which vacation spots would be better and they found out that wyoming, surprisingly enough, is better than martha's vineyard. nantucket is better than martha's vineyard but i don't think you'll find that in the poll. "usa today" is remibdsing us this morning franklin roosevelt was criticized for spending time on his yacht. john adams spent seven months in quincy, massachusetts, on his farm in 1797 and actually accused of abdicating his office and that criticism didn't help his bid for the second term. now, for republicans who are ready to poun
something. >> sean, we just posted a blog on my website, where barack obama is in martha's vineyard right now, hanging out with self-separating blacks. blacks who live on martha's v vineyard who will not associate with whites. he's not stoking this type of activity. the reason why he doesn't speak out about something like this is for exactly what i said, he does not care that -- as opposed to being a president who could start healing the racial divide in this country. he's decided he's going to let that divide exist. he should be right now, front and center of this particular issue saying, these teenaged kids should not be doing that. >> i can't have a problem with george bush spending most of his days in texas in the western white house than in the white house in washington, d.c.? the president took a couple days on vacation. i'm confident that he as well as the majority of his office, whoever is in d.c. right now at the white house is doing work on our behalf. >> no, what you're -- >> i'm not saying that george w. bush who had most of the staff. >> what you can't -- what you are not con

in martha's vineyard. an affluent island off the coast of massachusetts. this is the fourth year the president stayed in a private home on the island. the first first lady, the two daughters and the family dog bo will all make the trip. and joining us now from the island of the swells, fox news white house correspondent. now, i've went going to martha's vineyard forever. i went there when it was like poor people on the island. now they've thrown them all out. the real estate is unbelievable. when president obama first started going, remember, president clinton went up there as well. the reason they go is because a lot of democratic fund-raisers, big dems up there. they stay for free. so that's why the president is going, right? >> well, they don't actually stay for free. they rent the property. the reason they go is that the last two democratic presidents including president obama don't own or didn't, when they were in the white house, own their own vacation properties. remember, the past three republicans, bushes 41 and 43 and ronald reagan had large vacation homes in walker's p
. standing at 40%. it's not surprising, considering his decision to vacation at martha's vineyard while egypt is spiraling out of control. the president did emerge from the shadows of martha's vineyard to deliver a brief statement on the crisis in cairo. he spent all of six minutes, about 600 people dead, thousands injured. he announced the u.s. was canceling an exercise. he took a moment to compare egypt, yes egypt to the united states of america. oh, really, watch this. >> we recognize that change takes time. and that a process like this is never guaranteed. there are examples in recent history of countries that are transitioned out of a military government towards a democratic government and did not always go in a straight line and the process was not always smooth. there are going to be false starts. there will be difficult days. america's democratic journey took us through mighty struggles to perfect our union. >> a few short moments after makes those quite ignorant remarks, guess where the commander in chief was spotted. after that, he was playing golf on the golf course. which leaves m
mentioned, president obama heads to orlando before he arrives here in martha's vineyard. the president and the first lady will be speaking to disabled veterans. the first lady has really made helping veterans one of her signature issues. so we expect the president and first lady to focus on issues that are facing disabled veterans and also to talk about one of the issues, the backlog of veterans waiting for their benefits. florida has been a state particularly hard hit. a large number of veterans have been waiting for their benefits for 125 days or longer. that fits into the larger neck on the economy. we expect them to address the issue of jobs for vets as well in orlando. the president, sort of with all of this aiming to have the final word before he does begin his vacation here in marthas vineyard and gearing up for the fiscal fights. we saw that factor into his news conference yesterday. he sort of dared republicans to shut down the government over defunding health care laws. they want to defund obama care. first, everyone goes on vacation. >> absolutely. but not before we, by the
's brotherhood supporters. the president today, silent on the manner, as he continues his vacation on martha's vineyard with another round of golf. the white use sending deputy press secretary josh ernest to the cameras to condemn those attacks before secretary of state john kerry made the following remark. this sounds a lot like an endorsement of the muslim brotherhood and their leader of choice, mohamed morsi. >> these events are deplorable, and they run counter to egyptian aspirations for peace, inclusion, and genuine democracy. the egyptians inside and outside the government need to take a step back. >> kerry's surprise appearance at the state department briefing marked by his hubs that egypt parties can work out a diplomatic solution. this as the obama state department refuses to claim that egypt is now embroiled in a civil war or that the military takeover could be described as a coup. we're looking at an administration that still has not defined what has happened in a foreign nation over a month ago since this president was removed from office or how they plan for that matter to prese
for egypt. >> so the president breaks a vacation, makes an address from martha's vineyard on thursday. talk about what he said. are we doing the right thing? are we doing enough? >> i would have called it a coup six weeks ago. in terms of democracy in the middle east has been -- that credibility has been lost. that said, the united states is going to have influence only on the margins. perhaps it can draw boundaries around which the military has to operate. by not calling it a coup, we signal we're going to learn with whatever ultimately emerges in terms of a new government in egypt. >> p.j., if we were to label this a coup, that would mean we would have to stop funding any sort of military aid, any sort of humanitarian aid support to egypt. is that true? >> well, it is true. that's why the administration has largely decided they're not going to decide. and barring some sort of horrific -- >> what is that getting us right now? the money that we are supplying to egypt, what is that doing for the united states's interests there? >> well, the united states looks at the egyptian military as the

one. they are on their way to martha's vineyard where they will vacation for the next week. the president made one final stop in orlando this afternoon to speak at the disabled veterans national convention. >> at every generation there are americans like you who stand beside her and guide her and protect her. we need to make sure we've got the resources, the budget s our veterans deserve. >> the orlando event comes on the heels of yesterday's wide-ranging news conference at the white house. the president unveiled the series of proposals aimed at restoring public confidence in the government's secret surveillance programs. plan that the president said was in the works before edward snowden leaked secret nsa documents to the press. >> there's no doubt that mr. snowden's leaks triggered a much more rapid and passionate response. i actually think we would have gotten to the same place and we would have done so without putting at risk our national security. >> nbc's kristen welker is live at martha's vineyard where the president is expected to arrive shortly. kristen, good to se
. cheryl: today's closing argument between macy's, martha stewart and any, of the interesting things that came out of it is you have to wonder if any would be breathing a sigh of relief if they don't get this to go away because this is a ten year agreement with marcus during. ten year commitment that the current ceos made, ron johnson made this deal with martha stewart. >> interesting point, the martha brand will be strong for a long time. personally i think the quality of the merchandise is as important as the name. if the name is going to continue it is a split deal where they have to share it. that might not be as attractive either. consumers do recognize the quality of the product and the design. where that comes from i don't think is critical. cheryl: as long as they can get on sale that is aurora important part. thank you very much. they have been but people want what they want. dennis: in today's media minute next time you order a burger at a fast-food joint stick the best of the debit card and use your smart phone. verizon, at&t, t mobile going nationwide with isis, a service

briefing. white house press briefing taking place while the president is on vacation in martha's vineyard. this is their first regular briefing from the white house abroad since the president arrived there on martha's vineyard but what is said the white house and administration is sending its condolences to the people of egypt for these clashes and encourage the government of egypt to respect the rights of peaceful protesters. we will keep our eye on that. >>> when it comes to the star that can send somebody to the top for a favorite thing or a politician to success, say, the white house, one name comes to mind, oprah. now the one woman media mogul is returning to the silver screen in lee daniels "the butler." that is putting civil rights on the front burner ahead of the march on washington and the anniversary the nation contemplates the meaning of trayvon martin's death. >> look at you. all puffed up. tattle head. covering your ear. saying whatever you want. you're free to go. >> what? >> get the hell out of my house! do it! get on out. >> everybody sit down. >> i'm sorry, mr. butler. an
. >> you know, i want to go back to the president's news conference martha's vineyard, took time out from his vacation to denounce the violence we've been showing on our screen. what he didn't denounce were the attacks on coptic christians and these christian churches, the coptic pope is in hiding, a great many christians as well. and yet no denouncetion from this president. why is that? >> you know, gregg, i actually think the president did a good job this week in martha's vineyard when he talked about this issue. we didn't come out and say that the islamists won the election and they should be in charge. that's a good movement from this president. i think it's a very difficult time when you have so much violence going on and you have to remember that he was speaking right after many people, 600, 7 ooshgs 00, 800, are being reported killed. he should have said the violence against the christians in egypt is absolutely unacceptable as well, but i think he got it right in balance and that hew l denounce that violence against the christians. but let's be clear. there's violence going on on

supporters of the muslim brotherhood this week alone. we go live to martha's vineyard where president obama continues his vacation. any sign from the administration of what they will or even perhaps what they will not do next? >> well, craig, good afternoon. the administration at this point is not signaling any major shift in policy when it comes to egypt. we know that president obama has been briefed daily by his national security adviser susan rice, who is vacationing here on martha's vineyard with him. and of course this past week president obama announced that he would be canceling joint military operations between the u.s. and egypt that were scheduled to take place next month. this was a strong, symbolic rebuke to military for their inability to really get this situation under control in egypt and to get the unrest under control in egypt. but what the administration has not announced is that they will be withholding or withdrawing that $1.3 billion in military aid that they give to egypt every year, and that is really the united states' largest point of leverage at this point in time.
. and now it's on to court and jcpenney joining martha stewart living omnimedia against macy's. and seeing the parties in court today for the first time in three months and it's possible the judge could even render a decision today because he's had all of the post trial briefs for quite some time to really determine who, in fact, has the right to sell martha stewart designed products in the categories that macy's claims it contractually owns. right now martha stewart's legal team is presenting its closing argument. jcpenney's team will present after that. each of those legal teams will get 75 minutes each before macy's goes on for two hours of its closing. the judge said he will not ask any questions this time, he'll simply sit back and listen and take notes. macy's is no longer asking the judge to pull the jcpenney everyday products that martha stewart designed off of the shelves but is instead asking that he prohibit martha stewart living from designing any additional products in those categories. also macy's is now seeking damages, attorney's fees and punitive damages and injunctive rel
